Olde Creek Vision and Mission Input

Later this month, the staff at Olde Creek will begin the process of developing a new vision and mission statement for our school. As a part of that process, it will be important to have input from all of the key stakeholders that contribute to our school’s success. We would love to have as much input from the community as possible to the following statement….Please describe a bright future for Olde Creek ES.  We will also be going through a similar process with all of our students to gather their input. Everyone connected to our school is an important part of this process. If you are interested, please take a few moments to provide your input using the link below.
